Mrs. Oldemeyer's 2nd Grade

Gooooooooooooo Rattlers!

Valley View Charter Montessori is a community of learners where children can reach their full potential and contribute positively to society.


January Scholastic Order

    Scholastic Book Order due: Thursday, January 30th!! You can go to: scholastic.com/readingclub to enter in your order or send in your payment and order with your child and I can do it for you.  Our one-time class activation code for online orders is: P8M9Y.

Second Grade Info 

What an exciting adventure we are about to embark on in Second Grade! Here is some information that should be of interest to you and your child and help to make his/her transition a smooth one.

Weekly Schedule 8:00 to 2:12 p.m.

**Please note that students should not be on campus before 7:45 am. There is no supervision before then. The first bell is at 7:55 a.m.  School starts at 8:00 a.m.  

Should your child arrive between the time of 7:45-7:55, he/she should head to the blacktop to walk the lined area or head to our line to read/sit quietly.  Our class will be lining up in front of 2C.  Students arriving after 8:00 should enter through the front office door and receive a late pass from the school secretary before heading to class.

Snack/Lunch Time

We do have snack at morning recess (9:57). Students are encouraged to bring a healthy snack. Please, no candy, chips, or cookies. Students who are buying lunch should also bring a snack.Our lunchtime is 11:00-11:40. The first 20 minutes is the time for students to eat. The last 20 minutes is recess.  Please label your child’s lunch box. This makes finding lunch boxes at the end of the day easy for the students and the teacher.


We don’t have bathrooms in the classroom, but they are close by. We will be taking school tours and regular bathroom breaks to allow for this transition. Children are allowed to use the bathrooms at any time during the day, but please help us by encouraging them to use them at recess time. (We will go over this at school also.)


Although we are in school during the summer, it is sometimes cool when the children leave in the morning and they often wear sweaters or sweatshirts. Please be sure all removable sweaters and coats are clearly labeled with your child’s name. This really helps us when handing out forgotten items quickly at the end of our busy days.


Students will not be walked out at the end of the day. They will be leaving either from PE, Library, or the classroom as we have a lot of our specials at the end of the day. Please make sure you have arranged a meeting area with your child and he/she knows where to go at the end of each day.  For the children’s safety, please do not pick them up in front of the classrooms. If you ever have a change throughout the day, please call the office and they will call the classroom. Sometimes I am not able to check emails throughout the day and might not get it in time.

2nd Grade Supply List 

In lieu of providing a detailed supply list, we are asking for a donation of $25.00 per student that we hope you are able to contribute to our classroom. We will do the shopping to ensure we have the needed items and make life a little easier. We will be providing the children with paper, paint, crayons, journals, scissors, art supplies, etc.  All supplies in our Montessori classrooms are shared, as we are learning about organizing our materials and working as a community.  

If you would like to donate extra supplies throughout the year, we can always use more of the following:

●   Black Dry Erase Markers, Pencils, Erasers, Glue Sticks, Colored Pencils, Crayons, Markers, Clorox or other brand of disinfectant wipes

All work is sent home on Fridays, except for a daily reading book in an envelope. There is no written homework in 2nd grade, we just ask that you are reading each night with your child and practicing math facts.
